I am a very caring, independent individual, I am fully committed to each person I care for. What helps me be a great caregiver is that I quickly become attached and fully committed to the individual I am caring for, as if they were my own family member. What attracted me to this career was after seeing my Mom caring for my Dad when he was I'll, the fact that at that moment I was too young to understand how to help her made me want to learn all that I could to be able to help other families. What I enjoy the most is learning about the lives of the many people I have met and cared for along the years. Some of times being the last or only one there at their time of passing. Just knowing I did my best and never left them alone during that moment. I have learned many different skills along the way many of which I wish I had a certificate for, but yet still glad I have learned them and have the knowledge to perform if needed.
